And I must voice my opinion of not even pretending she didn't have me
Strung like a chicken, chase my tail like a doggie
She was kind of like a star, thinking I was like a fan
Dude, she looked good, down side, she had a man
He was a rooty toot, a nincompoop
She told me soon your little birdies gonna fly the coop
She was a flake like corn, and I was born not to understand
By letting her pass I had proved to be a better man she keeps on passing me by

in my younger days I used to sport a shag
When I went to school I carried lunch in a bag
With an apple for my teacher 'cause I knew I'd get a kiss
Always got mad when the class was dismissed
But when it was in session, I always had a question
I would raise my hand to make her stagger to my desk and
help me with my problem, it was never much Just a trick, to smell her scent and try to sneak a touch
Oh, how I wish I could hold her hand and give her a hug
She was married to the man, he was a thug,

Sport a shag. It's a haircut. The term "Sagging" wasn't used back then.

I hear "sport a sag"

It's funny when you think for years that the lyric is something else .. I bought the cassette single when Passin me by dropped .. It has the cardboard case that slipped in like a sleeve .. Was a Bizzarre fan strait up since 1991-92 , even my moms got the lyrics wrong and me and pops used to laugh at her singing Pharcyde, Ice Cubes Death Certificate and she used to imitate the scratch cuts in the track from Chuck Ds s**t "I got a letter from the government - the other day - I opened - and read it

Lyrics. Now these labels have raped the lyrical content to leave nothing to the imagination. 80 percent of what is being played is predictable regarding lyrical flow and content.

Don't read this because it actually works.you will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this u will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. Put this in at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes.when done press f6 and your lovers name will come up on the screan in big letters. This is scary because it actually works.
